Description

Rescheduled after the Beast from the East hit the North East at the back end of February... we didn't want you all travelling in the snowstorm!

We are excited to be hosting another Tech Talks event streamed live by The Industry Angel Business Podcast.

This event welcomes the fantastic Jill McKinney, Head of Skills at Sunderland Software City. Jill is a passionate leader working across the North East to raise awareness of the skills issues within the digital and tech sector.

Once again Far North's very own Ian Farrar will be chatting with Jill at One Trinity Green.



Jill McKinney

Jill's current role sees her work across the region, proactively engaging industry and education to support both parties to get what they need from each other - talk about a challenge!

With teachers being stretched to breaking point with existing curriculum demands, the need for digital skills in business in of huge importance - and not only in the tech sector.

Moving on to ensuring there is opportunity for industry to input into education whilst recognising the constraints some SMEs face with their time, there is the potential of real trouble brewing in developing and recruiting talent within the North East.

Jill pumps the region with enthusiasm and when she's finished her day at work, with meetings in locations from South Shields to Newcastle and Middlesbrough, she takes to the streets... in her running shoes of course!
